All-Ireland camogie finals take centre stage at Croker

THE Gala All-Ireland senior and junior camogie finals will be staged back-to-back at Croke Park next month, with the Bord Gais U-21 All-Ireland hurling final completing the triple-header on September 13.

Up to now, the camogie matches were the first and third leg of the day, but this year the programme has been varied with RTE due to broadcast both camogie games live.

Meanwhile, Armagh will be without Andrea McAlinden for their replayed Nancy Murray Cup final against Roscommon at Drumlane, Cavan on Sunday.

The corner-forward notched a crucial goal in the second half of the tied game, but is leaving for Australia today and will be replaced in the starting line-up by Cathy Smyth.

The Rossies, who contested last year's final and have yet to taste All-Ireland glory, had a disappointing start the last day. However, a fair reflection of their ability to turn matches around was displayed by two second-half goals from Claire Curley.

Elsewhere, Mayo, Donegal, Louth, Cavan, Wicklow and Monaghan will play for the Maire Ni Chinneide Cup in a one-day blitz at the Monaghan Harps GAA grounds on Saturday.
